I’ve just purchased a second-hand DJI Mavic Mini, and have done my first couple of flights. I live in Southampton near the General Hospital, which is the big cluster of buildings you can see in a couple of the images below.
I’m really enjoying flying the drone, and am starting to get the hang of it (videos aren’t great yet, but I’m getting some nice photos).
I’ve really enjoyed looking around at the posts here - and am hoping to participate in some of the challenges soon (though I’m sitting out the ‘lights’ one as I’m nowhere near confident enough to fly in the dark/twilight yet).
Have you seen our members map? (Click the burger-menu in the top right) You may find some pilots living near you. Feel free to add yourself to the members map too
We’re a well established club with many knowledgeable members so it’s very likely that any issues you come across will have been discussed here before.

Welcome aboard @robintw
For the challenges, think outside the box! Use your imagination and creativity. It doesnt have to be a pitchblack sky lit up by a football ground to qualify, get out and try your luck. Imagination and creativity are all thats required, oh, and of course a drone
I’ve tried to go and add a new location to Drone Scene, but I get a message saying that I need to write a post in Introductions and then I’ll be able to add a new location. This post is my post in Introductions…do I need to do something else?
